Outlander drives record used sales

Strong demand for the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has seen Mitsubishi Motors in the UK notch up two consecutive months of record sales of pre-owned internal fleet vehicles.

Of the 717 pre-owned vehicles that Mitsubishi dealers have bought directly from the manufacturer’s UK division since the start of the year, nearly 45% were the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.

Such is the demand for pre-owned examples of the versatile all-wheel drive SUV that 2017 YTD sales figures of used internal fleet vehicles represent an increase of over 43% compared to the same period in 2016.

The manufacturer attributes its sales growth to a general rise in motorists appreciating the benefits of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles and additional benefits of its recently enhanced Approved Used Programme.
